Type of Place

A multimedia project that documents daily life inside the mom and pop shops that are vanishing from the streets of New York. Weaving together audio interviews, digital photography, and film photography, Type of Place aims to highlight the value that small spaces bring to local communities, and to preserve any remaining fragments of the city’s cultural fabric before they disappear altogether.
